PCGB Croft Track Day 3rd August 2023

(Can't believe I haven't responded to this post - hope you've an extra burger or two 🥴 eek! )

See you all at the track 👍

Thanks for putting on the event today. Although I only made it for a short time I did enjoy it. Looking forward to more events.


Thankfully the rain showers stayed away from Croft circuit which made for great viewing of the club cars on track and great to see so many people from r3 both spectating and driving. Thanks again to John and Gillian for providing a very nice bar-b-que lunch for so many people.....You'll have to bring five loaves and two fishes next year. :)

Croft was my first R3 event which as Ive already mentioned I did enjoy although I was only able to visit for a short time. For the next club track day, what would I need to do to go out on track. I assume there must be some sort of briefing to attend and I’d need a helmet. is there a cost involved?

many thanks


Hi Brian

Glad you enjoyed your visit to the track day and chatting to a few club members. Track days are organised by the national club and can be booked by visiting and clicking on the events button. As you note a helmet is mandatory and you must bring your driving license, once booked you’ll receive instructions about the day, timings, briefing etc from the club close to the date of the event by email. The days are very popular and often sell out shortly after they appear on the web-site earlier in the year, although it’s always possible there may be places which become available due to cancellations. There are a number of track days at different tracks around the country spread across the year.

Book early and we’ll look forward to seeing you at the Croft day next year. In the meantime keep an eye on the R3 forum and join us for another event.

Drive safe


Hi all

Thanks to everyone who visited Croft track day, whether driving or spectating. The weather definitely looked very kindly upon the event, particularly considering the unbelievable quantities of rain the North East has experienced recently. The track was relatively quiet, especially the afternoon session, which made driving all the better. There were some quick GT cars out there!

Many thanks too for the generous donations to the Great North Air Ambulance charity, suggested by David and collected by Mike, raising £75 which, with gift aid, rises to just over £93.

A great day out, enhanced by Mrs H’s lemon drizzle and fruit cakes courtesy of Sir John!

Drive safe

John & Gillian


Terrific day again and as John mentioned some fast cars (and drivers) on track.

Yes the weather was very kind and the afternoon session increasingly relaxing as numbers diminished.

Thank you John for the passenger ride and I was delighted when you joined me after and we again saw the chequered flag at end the day - brilliant. (I would encourage members to try passenger rides with others - such an interesting experience especially in a 911 Turbo after my 981S Boxster - added to the thrills and enjoyment of the day.

As ever, a wonderful BBQ ('with sides') to really bring the club together - some commenting they enjoyed that part of the track day as much as being out on the track! Thanks John, thanks Gillian, thanks all - another marvellous R3 event 👍
